Are the Middleton sisters responsible for rise in sales of nude tights?

We already know that the high street clothing seen on either Middleton sister sell out within minutes of being identified - but could Pippa and Kate now be responsible for the resurgence of a somewhat un-stylish trend?

Our guest writer Jean Hannah Edelstein picked up on it a couple of weeks ago, citing it as the reason that the Middleton sisters would "never be style icons." We're of course, talking about their penchant for flesh-coloured hosiery...
They've long been champions of the nude tight, but most recently, the Duchess of Cambridge donned some almost-invisible tights during her recent trip to the Epsom Derby, while Pippa was seen wearing a high-shine pair for a night out in Paris last month. 



According to the Telegraph, sales in nude tights have reportedly shot up by 85% in the past year - a direct result of Middleton mania?

Other suggested reasons for the increase in sales have been put down to fear of over-exposure of legs to the sun's harmful rays, or an attempt to bridge the awkward trans-seasonal gap between opaques in the winter and bare legs in the spring/summer.
